08:02 EDTLGNDLigand announces presentation of data from Phase 1 study
Ligand Pharmaceuticals announced that data from a Phase 1 study of the selective estrogen receptor modulator lasofoxifene were featured in a poster presentation today at ICE/ENDO 2014 in Chicago. The presentation provided data from a first-in-human clinical study of lasofoxifene that was performed by Pfizer and recently analyzed by Ligand demonstrating the potent and prolonged effect of a single dose to increase circulating testosterone and gonadotropin levels in healthy young men. Highlights of the presentation include: In an investigator-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled, single-ascending dose study involving 36 healthy male volunteers, lasofoxifene was well-absorbed after oral administration with peak plasma concentrations reached approximately 6 to 9 hours post-dose and a long elimination half-life of approximately 106 hours; There were no serious adverse events and no clinically significant changes in safety laboratory, vital signs or ECG assessments; Single oral doses of lasofoxifene of 1, 3, 10, 30 and 100 mg increased levels of testosterone; doses of 30 and 100 mg increased levels of T by more than 80%; Levels of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone were also elevated with single oral doses of 30 and 100 mg; Levels of T, LH and FSH peaked between 3 and 7 days post-dose and elevations induced by higher doses were maintained through at least 28 days; T levels plateaued at the high normal range of 30-40 nmol/L between 7 and 28 days post-dose regardless of lasofoxifene dose or LH levels.
